Remembering Dominic Duval

Read "Remembering Dominic Duval" reviewed by Dom Minasi

Around 1985, I got a call from a close friend and my drummer at the time, Tony Lupo. Tony and I had been friends and playing together since 1963. At that time, we were both into Be-Bop and as we grew in age, our musical tastes and interest leaned towards outside playing. Of course, we never ...

Brian Groder Trio: R Train On The D Line

Read "R Train On The D Line" reviewed by Mark Corroto

An album like R Train On The D Line is what separates jazz listeners from non-jazz listeners. The Brian Groder Trio plays the kind of composed yet improvised music that portends to go off the rails at any time, yet never does. And that may be the true definition of jazz.

Brian Groder Trio: Reflexology

Read "Reflexology" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

È curioso che fra i tredici nomi che circumnavigano la pianta del piede che campeggia in copertina non compaia quello di Shorty Rogers. Se dovessimo infatti trovare un ipotetico progenitore di questo disco (e questo trio) il primo nome che ci verrebbe in mente sarebbe proprio quello del trombettista californiano (in realtà nativo del Massachusetts), idealmente ...
